“Tree, Lake, Ridge, Mountain Pass”, 11×14 oil on canvas, study, by Rog Lyngaas, 21jan08, using choate7 palette.
Last year I was able to travel to the “Trinities”. They are a set of high mountain lakes in the Idaho High Country, east of Boise, north of Prairie, and west of Featherville. This lake looks like many of the small lakes near the Trinity Lookout, which is a fire lookout. I thought of them and their colors when I painted this scene.
